VNA honored with Preservation Award and Mayoral Citation!

19 Dec 2010, Posted by Rob Crow in News

In late May, the Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy proudly presented their tenth annual Preservation Awards Ceremony in honor of those who have significantly contributed to the preservation of Jersey City’s architectural and cultural heritage. Categories include the Excellence in Preservation Award, the Theodore Conrad Preservationist Award, the J. Owen Grundy History Award, the Preservation Initiative Award, and the Jersey City Legend Award. A tour of the historic Loew’s Jersey Theatre followed the ceremony presented by the JC Landmarks Conservancy.

I was thrilled when I learned that The Village Neighborhood won the prestigious Theodore Conrad Preservationist Award “For its spirited grassroots efforts to preserve the cultural and architectural heritage of the Italian Village district of Downtown Jersey City”. On behalf of the VNA Board of Directors, I would like to thank the JC Landmarks Conservancy for this wonder acknowledgement of our efforts, and we look forward to working with the Conservancy on future collaborations such as The Village Historic Walking Tours and other preservation initiatives.

The ceremony was excellent, and as an added bonus, the VNA was also presented with a Citation from Mayor Jerramiah Healy in honor of our work supporting The Village. Needless to say, it was a great night!
